Some more springtime joy Gecko Galz style

I altered a paper advertising fan for a sweet spring project.
The background is painted with watercolors onto which I adhered Gecko Galz Violets are Blue ephemera, Prima flowers, vintage flowers, vintage lace, and a few trinkets.
I tore a piece of Gecko Galz Wonderland paper - Alice - into strips, spritzed it with water, and then gathered it and adhered it to the back of the fan. Then I adhered more vintage lace (actually removed from a Laura Ashley dress that I used to wear).
Finally I tied into bows some Prima lace, hand dyed silk ribbon, and strips of fabrics

Thanks for looking and have a super March 
Did yours come in like a lion or a lamb?
